“Great stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This Hampton is only a little over three months old so everything is so fresh and clean. The Hampton beds are always comfortable so we had a great night's sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
My husband enjoyed the pool and the fitness room is well equipped.
The hotel is a short distance from the center of town but it is very close to an Olive Garden so we were happy to eat there.

Very comfortable and new hotel. The staff was professional and friendly. The breakfast was good and they kept everything stocked. For dinner and shopping, if you make a left coming onto the main road as you leave the hotel, you will find some restaurants and shopping. During our visit there, one elevator was not working and the other was so slow that it was much easier to take the stairs. Hopefully, they have taken care of both elevators. Rooms were clean and comfortable and passed my wife's high standards.

Hotel is really nice, everything brand new. It was well decorated and I genuinely enjoyed it.

I should say that I normally stay at the Courtyard across the street for business travel. I liked this hotel better.

The staff was genuinely friendly and nice. The coffee and tea supplies were always present and hot.

Room nicely decorated, had plenty of space. Booked a 2 Queen room.

Plenty of easy to find outlets, good room light, medium speed wifi. It was a busy soccer weekend. Even with a full hotel and lots of kids running about, the noises didn't go from room to room.

Everything was present. Clock, luggage stand, etc. Water pressure was *meh*, but that happens on the 3rd floor. Temperature was hot. Shampoo/conditioner also *meh*

The room was well decorated and spacious. The light blocking blinds worked very well. TV channels had good selection. Parking free and easy. Breafast was great.

Loved the bedding, didn't like the bed. Too hard. Not just firm, but hard. Pillow selection was also poor, the pillows are hard, too.

If the bed/pillows had been more comfortable, the rating would be a 5.

Room Tip: 319 was good.

I've stayed here, I believe three times over the last month or so for Business. Always friendly, room is cleans, reasonably fast internet connection and free and a decent complimentary breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn and Suites after it had just been open approx. 5-6 weeks. The hotel is very well laid out and the staff was fantastic. A few "new hotel" kinks, but the positive attitude of the staff overshadowed any issues.
We enjoyed the free breakfast buffet each morning and it was very good and well stocked. Room was comfortable and quiet.
The only minor complaint was housekeeping was a bit lax on bathroom clean-up (dirty soap dish and no new soaps).
It is a short drive to the downtown SLO shops and restaurants, but still convenient to Hwy 1 and the coast. I would recommend this property, and would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed our one night stay here. Everything from check-in to the free breakfast to checkout went as smoothly as possible. The rooms were spotless, had plenty of areas to charge our electronics, the wifi worked well, etc. All we really want is a clean, safe hotel where we can sleep without noise or distractions. Even though the hotel had lots of large groups staying there, nobody bothered us, the noise was under control and the beds were quite comfortable.

Room Tip: We had a view of the highway and couldn't hear a single car. I would imagine rooms in the back a...

A beautiful brand new facility with a convenient location next to the highway, it’s just what you’d expect from a Hampton. The staff was friendly, the room was nice, the wi-fi worked well, breakfast was good and plentiful, and there was more than enough parking. The bathroom door is set to always swing closed so that’s a very annoying feature we could do without. You do need a car to go to eat or shopping. Priced very much on the high side but it probably just goes with the area and summertime. We would definitely stay there again.
